Apathy by L.K. Reid ~ Release Blitz w/ 5 Star Review!

APATHY
L.K. Reid
Release Date: September 20

There were sicknesses in this world even holy water couldn’t wash away.

In vicious nights, beautiful monsters lay.
Some with faces known, some ready to play.
Unsure of a friend, unsure of a foe,
Be certain of nothing you think you know,

Because what once enters Winworth, never leaves again.

Skylar Blackwood thought she knew what monsters looked like.
But in Winworth, nothing is what it seems.

Not the arrival of a stranger with eyes that see too much, and lips that taste like danger.
Not the young women who begin disappearing in the night.
And certainly not the people in the sleepy town she grew up in that begin to turn on one another.

One truth is undeniable, something wicked is loose in Winworth.
No one is safe, and trusting the wrong person could cost Skylar everything.

Trapped between the two worlds as secrets start to unravel, what little sanity Skylar has left threatens to shatter, leaving her with more questions than answers.

Turns out, real monsters are never what they seem.

APATHY is the first book in Secrets of Winworth series, dealing with dark themes that might not be suitable for all readers. It is recommended only for readers above the age of 18.

Sweet Jesus…what did I just read?!? I freaking love dark romance…LOVE! This story sucked me into a town where the most vile and disgusting cult of families rules the people with an iron fist. Skylar is a broken girl who dreams of escaping the darkness surrounding her. So many triggers in this book…but I freaking loved these gray characters and not knowing who to trust. And the mystery of it all. The sexy stranger. The obsessive ex. The possessive brother. I mean I could go on and on. At one minute, I’m devouring the pages and trying to figure out what might be the next step and the next I’m cringing and wanting to hide in the corner. Crazy, insane stuff happens in this story. I’m dying to see where the author takes us next. Please keep taking me out of my comfort zone and throw me to the wolves because I’m all in!

Meet L.K. Reid

Hi there. My name is Leila but I am writing under my pen name L.K. Reid. 

I write dark romance, the characters that are depraved, lost, a little bit misunderstood and most of my books are touching subjects of mental health in one way or another. While Ricochet is the first book I will release, I have actually been writing since Primary School, but that little thing called self-doubt always kept me away from truly pursuing my dreams. 

​Recently I realized that if I don’t chase my dreams, I will never do everything I want to do. Sixty years from now I would regret all the things I was too afraid to do, so I did it. I allowed myself to dream and put myself out there. I want to show you these worlds swirling inside my head and these characters whose stories have to be told. 

​I am a restless person. I can’t stay in the same place for a very long time so I like to move. I love to explore new places, meet new people, learn about new cultures, you know, the usual. My mom used to tell me that I live inside my head, and that’s true. I really do. While I do love being surrounded with other people I also love to be alone. I think that until we truly know ourselves and our thoughts we could never be truly happy. 

​Truth to be told, I am still figuring out this whole adult “thingy”, but I think that most of us are pretty much lost in that world. Slow walkers are the bane of my existence, and one of my biggest pet peeves is people not responding on their messages – it really drives me crazy. 

​I wanted to be an archeologist, but we can see that that definitely didn’t work out. My small obsession with Greek, Egyptian, Nordic and Slavic Mythology was one of the driving forces behind many stories I wrote as a teenager, and I am pretty sure that one day I will end up writing a book with those themes. 

​If I could I would set Halloween as a Public Holiday. Spooky season, Autumn, that’s my jam. Scary movies go hand-in-hand with that I would say, and my favorite ones are Halloween and Scream – all of them. Music was always a big part of my life as well, and I can’t imagine a day where I don’t listen to it for at least a little bit. Everything I ever wrote was done while listening to music, and if it wasn’t for music, I would most probably be completely lost.

Forever Changed by Amber Nicole ~ Release Blitz w/ 4.5 Star Review!

A dark college reverse harem romance, by Amber Nicole is now live and available in Kindle Unlimited!

Blurb

I used to dream of the day I would be able to carry on my Mama’s legacy.

To follow her footsteps and attend her alma mater.

I would listen to her for hours during her chemo treatments about all the friends she made and the amazing parties and events she attended.

But life had a different path for me.

I never thought my soulmate would become my step-brother, or that my sorority sisters would hate me just for being a legacy.

What was supposed to be four of the best years of my life turned into lies, betrayal and heartache.

My college experience was nothing like I had hoped, but if I could go back and change things, I wouldn’t dare.

My eyes are open now.

I will never be blindsided again.

I had made a promise, but some promises are too hard to keep. It’s time I take charge of my own life, and live for myself … but is it too late? Has my life been forever changed?

A crazy, emotional intense roller coaster ride! Whew. I really liked this reverse harem story because the heroine was so different. She’s innocent, sweet, loving and has a beautiful soul. The guys…so many guys. A couple are from her hometown and loved her forever. And a few are from her new college. And then we have her new stepbrother who was her childhood crush. There’s a whole lot of angst going on! Also, some steamy scenes mixed in between. Throw in some jealous bullying and we have a story that keeps you glued to the pages. I honestly didn’t know where the twists would take us and why the villain has such a hate-on for Carson. Or why the guys don’t just fess up and tell Carson what’s going on? This book is a huge drama fest with blindsides that just keep coming. And I kind of was right there…unable to look away. Definitely entertaining and has you devouring the pages with an ending that stabs you right in the heart. Can’t wait for the next book to see where the author takes us next!

Saint by Sierra Simone ~ Blog Tour w/ 5 Star Review!

Maybe trying to be a holy man was a doomed experiment all along.

Saint by USA Today Bestselling Author Sierra Simone is Now Available!⁣

SAINT by Sierra Simone
Release Date: September 7th
Genre/Tropes: M/M/Second-chance romance/Brothers Best Friend/Forbidden Romance

Blurb

I can’t have Elijah Iverson.

I can’t have him because he’s my older brother’s best friend. I can’t have him because I broke his heart five years ago; because he’s now engaged to someone else—someone kind and dependable who deserves his whiskey eyes, his soft mouth, his fierce intellect.

I can’t have Elijah because I’ve chosen God instead.

The Bell brothers, though . . . well, we don’t exactly have the greatest track record with vows. But I’m determined to do this monk thing right—to pledge myself to a cloistered life and spend the rest of my years in chastity and prayer. But now Elijah’s here. He’s here and he’s coming with me on my European monastery road trip, and between the whispered confessions and the stolen kisses and the moments bent over an ancient altar, my vows are feeling flimsier by the day.

And vows or not, I know in my heart that it would take more than a good and holy monk to resist Elijah Iverson right now. It would take a saint.

And we all know that I’m no saint.

(This is the third full-length standalone in the Priest Collection, featuring Father Bell’s brother, Aiden Bell.  You do not have to read Priest or Sinner to read Saint.)

A little bit forbidden and a whole lot of role playing going on! How could I not fall in love with Aiden as a monk and Elijah as the abandoned ex-lover? The story has the mystery of why Aiden ran off in the middle of the night to join a monastery without talking to his boyfriend. I loved the way these two reconnected again and how Aiden was torn between his love of God and his love for Elijah. The writing was addictive and I couldn’t put the book down. Will they or won’t they? Will Aiden be discovered? Will he stay in Europe and help brew monk beer? The story was super steamy, playful at times, heartbreaking at others and I couldn’t see an easy happy ending. Definitely a bit of an emotional roller coaster. I LOVE this series and the evolving view on religion. Quite beautiful in the end.

Poisoned Paradise by Lucy Smoke ~ Release Blitz w/ 4.25 Star Review!

What if you were in love with someone you could never have? What if they loved you back?

Blurb

𝑾𝒊𝒍𝒍𝒐𝒘
Six years ago, I made a mistake. The worst mistake I could have ever possibly made. I fell in love with the wrong person and … I told him.

Ryan’s always been with me ever since I can remember. It’s been the two of us—side by side. Through every new beginning, every new ‘family’, and every failure. Is it any wonder that the love I had for him turned into something different—something deeper? Something utterly rotten? And is it any wonder that he hates me for it now?

𝑹𝒚𝒂𝒏
I’m a damaged soul, and she’s the only thing that’s ever held me together. But the one woman I want is the one woman I can never have.

She thinks I hate her for her confession, and maybe a part of me does. What I hate more, though, is that I have to push her away to keep her safe. That I have to pretend like I don’t fucking want her when she’s all I’ve been able to think about for the last six years.

We’re no fucking Romeo and Juliet. We’re much worse than that. A love like ours was doomed from the start.

Holy taboo bully romance! I actually enjoyed this dark, forbidden story and my heart was all over the place. Willow is a smart, introverted, slightly confident student. But she has a dark secret that she’s tried to bury deep in her heart. Ryan is cocky, quarterback with a hidden connection with Willow. But he wants nothing to do with her. I loved the push and pull in this book…the crazy teasing, mysterious and not so surprising bullying, undeniable attraction…I couldn’t stop turning the pages. This story is filled with high angst, drama, steam and stalker behavior. All of my favorite dark themes. If you love a naughty taboo romance, look no further because as crazy as the premise is for this dark story, everything pulls together in the end.

Her identity will cost her the man who’s captured her heart unless she can convince Emmett her feelings are true.


Before he learns the reason she proposed their fling in the first place.

What can I say about the beautiful ending to an amazing series? My Tin Gypsy family is trying to move on and stay safe when Emmett meets Nova and sparks fly EVERYWHERE. Both are determined to keep things casual for different reasons. Emmett is looking for some steamy good loving and Nova is out for revenge. I love every single character in this series…well, maybe every single member of the Tin Gypsy family. Each story grips me with the angsty emotional dilemmas and I’m addicted to how the characters are going to overcome their struggles. The way this entire series follows how each former MC member matures and nurtures their family members pulls at my heartstrings. I literally cannot put a single book down and devour them like my favorite dessert. I will be highly recommending these books as one of my favorite MC series because they are so different. The ending was perfection.
